Scattered traces of stone presses from past eras; a terrain rising all the way up to mountain peaks and deepening to the profundity of the sea; historic vines of Attica such as Savvatiano, Roditis and Mavroudi along with Assyrtiko – the migrant from Santorini; these were the treasures which inspired Vasilis Kaniaris and his two sons, Dimosthenis and Giorgos, to revive the legendary Megara vineyard.
This new breath of life has already proved to be fruitful for the vineyard. The replanting of vines, which started in 1988 and was later successfully completed by applying purely organic practices, allowed for new vines to replace the old ones, thus boosting the vineyards dynamics. At the same time, modern winemaking facilities were created to harmoniously complement the historic character and beauty of the landscape of Megara. The old presses were restored and embraced by rows of vines which follow all the contemporary methods of viticulture, while the construction of the Chateau and the venues which host wine lovers served as the final touch for the vision of the Kaniaris family. Today, the Viticultural Manor is always there to share with you the secrets and pleasures of wine worship.
